I've had a Motif 8 since 2002, and although I had to get the keyboard replaced (Yamaha picked up the cost 5 years later!!), I wouldn't trade it for anything else I've played. My first poly synth was a Juno 60. Currently, I also own a Kurzweil PC2, Roland XP-60, and Alesis Performance Pad, which is my gigging rig. The Motif 8 is a joy to play, and once you've master the sequencer and Yamaha's nomenclature, you're off to the races. I have high regard for Korg and Roland gear as well.

First I want to say it is strange that there is no own space for the Motif ES? it is a different synth than Motif original.

This is a monster with a very good sound but it is so freaking hard to use so it gets a 2! sorry!

The new XS is probably be what ES should have been?

I happen to own both a Korg triton rack and the original Motif 6. It is true that none of these two is complete, afterall how many keyboards are?? I have programed sounds on both and use the Triton with an A-37 MIDI controller playing mostly pads, harps and a great hammond sound. The motif which i admit has a terrible ac.piano sound, has amazing flute and wind instrument sounds, strings(especially if you match and mix and stack single sounds_"voices" together) and also a couple of really nice electric pianos. I also like a lot of the synth sounds on the motif. Does anybody know why the ES does not read my combination sounds "performances" when i go on tour and try to unload them from my memory card? How can I solve this problem? Also how is the motif rack as far as sounds compared to the original motif and how easy is it to switch from one sound to the next on the rack without having all the bank and numbers buttons that you have on the keyboard? please email me at and we can exchange information about either one of these keyboards. Thanks!

All this Triton Bashing I mean seriously. I've owned the Triton since they were first made available to the public. They were a revolutionary design in the music industry. They offered features that hadn't been thought of, but like all things they don't have everything.

You can't expect one board to give you everything that you want. you have to buy them for thier strengths, and use another "synth" to make up for what they lack. That's one of the major points of creativity..being creative.

I've owned my Triton for so long that I know the unit very well. Most of the time when I play music that I used the Triton in, other Triton users don't even recognize the Triton sound. mainly because you have to learn to adjust the sounds to get the most out of the board.Tuning is a strong part of any instrument.

I'm currently collecting my pennies together to grab a Motif board. I like the Acoustic touch it offers. Much like the Roland XV series. Very life like. That alone makes it worth the buy. The Triton lacks a large selection of acoustic sounds, but the orchestra card is amazing once installed. It really depends on what your looking for. But for a Synthesizer effect, I haven't heard a board for under 2G's that can cover the sounds of my 400.00 EMU Vintage Keys, now that's a mind blowing synth unit.
